This is hilarious. Red State Reichwing Ranting Retards are always going off about "The Nanny State" and Dependency and Wasteful Government Spending and over taxation. Well guess what Jethro, if you and your kinfolk would stop sucking off the government teat so much, looks like America wouldn't have such financial difficulties.

In a study released today, the nonpartisan Tax Foundation reveals that red states continue to rely on the largess of the federal government.
The top seven charity cases -- and 13 of the top 15 -- are states that cast their votes for Bush in 2004. First in line for handouts is New Mexico, which scores $2 for every buck it sends to Washington, The rest of the top 15: Alaska, West Virginia, Mississippi, North Dakota, Alabama, Virginia, Hawaii, Montana, South Dakota, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Kentucky and Maryland.
And which states are the real bastions of up-by-your-bootstraps self-reliance and compassion for the least among us? Well, the top five giving states are ones that John Kerry carried in 2004: New Jersey -- which got 55 cents for every dollar it gave to Washington -- followed by Connecticut, New Hampshire, Minnesota and Illinois.
What about Californians and New Yorkers, those coastal snobs who are so self-absorbed that their skin has turned blue? It turns out that they can take care of themselves and a whole lot of other Americans, too. They're eighth and ninth on the most-charitable list, getting back just 79 cents of each dollar they send to Washington. -- Tim Grieve
